Default New Partner Requirements

So you've been burned by divorce and have finally started looking for someone else. Has what went wrong with your last relationship given you new perspective on what you are looking for in a new partner?

I personally am being a little more stringent in what I'm looking for in a prospective partner. Here's my list of requirements, and I'd be interested in knowing what yours might be:

1. Has a job.
2. Not crazy.
3. No drama queens.

That's pretty much it. It's actually much harder to find all 3 than one would think

Has definitely given me a new perspective. I think that I have come to the conclusion that while opposites may attract, they never really understand each other, so it's probably better to seek someone closer to your own personality.

Also with respect to items 2 & 3 above, I think as you get older it gets harder to find qualifying people.

Agreed. That's it - from now on I'm not dating anyone over the age of 25

Very interesting post.

Personally I was looking for the man that was "overly" honest if that is possible without being rude and a very good sense of humour.

Someone who is able and willing to be completely open and up front with all aspects of their life and feelings is very important as there leaves no room for speculation or wonder. I do not think it is possible to find someone who is not, at some level, dramatizing. But crazy???? Well that is subjective.

Yup, open and honest with a sense of humour, because if you can laugh at yourself and your boo boo, it makes it easier. Think about it, if you’re having a bad day or things just seem to be going wrong, doesn’t it make you feel better when someone can make you laugh and laugh with you?

Not in my case. She was arrested and ordered by the court to attend psychological counselling as part of her probation order.

That "is" very unfortunate.
And I hope things are better for you now.

Best of luck.
